EMILIJA KASUMOVIC (SA)
Nexus Arts Studio Resident: SALA Festival 2019
Future of the Senses explores material and spiritual perspectives surrounding the human ego and our over-identification and attachment with form and appearance. Inflexible ideas and structured models can limit our experience of that quintessential part of our nature which lies beyond our immediate physical awareness, beyond the physical body and space we all reside in.
Through experimental sculpture and installation employing elemental alchemy and amorphous materiality, emerging Australian-Serbian artist Emilija Kasumovic explores the vicissitude of materials, as these are exposed to immaterial forces, one allowing the shaping of the other. Her work inquires into the nature of our spiritual and physical space, considering the ever-evolving states of material and spiritual being as these same elements and forces intermingle within and around us.
